Shapiro Projects officially launches January 23rd on New York City’s Upper East Side with Animate Forces, a solo exhibition of paintings, many shown for the first time, by the Ukrainian-born artist.

This new exhibition represents Mr. Turovsky’s radical artistic shift towards larger, brighter, and more positive works. Luscious fruit, sensuous nudes, and hypnotic landscapes embrace vibrant life-affirming colors. The luxuriously textured surfaces excite the senses and invite the viewer to engage in an intensely emotional experience.

More information about artist available here.

The 44 paintings, dating from 1991 to 2015, comprise Mr. Turovsky’s body of works that follow the decade he spent in the 1980s creating his critically-acclaimed Holocaust series which the New York Times said “hammers at a viewer’s sensibilities,” and “convey Mikhail Turovsky’s hellish vision.”
